While the final decision still rests with the International Olympic Committee, the latter 3 are expected to make a debut in the upcoming Olympics itself.
Also known as 'breaking', breakdancing finds its roots in American hip-hop culture of the 1970s. From there, it slowly emerged as a 'dance sport' and got famous in Paris.
A report from The Washington Post quoted French break dancer Mounir Biba as saying:
There’s simply no doubt about the athletic aspects of the discipline. I defy Cristiano Ronaldo to do just one of my movements.
Olympic breakdancing events will likely feature face-offs between individuals or teams while a DJ plays music on the console.
